Giving the users a hand : towards touchless hand gestures for the desktop.
(, 20140905)Touchless, midair, gesturebased interactions have recently moved out of laboratories and Hollywood movies and into the hands of users. There is little difference in the interaction style and techniques used today from ... 
Recommendations Made Easy
(20140623)Fueled by evergrowing data, the need to provide recommendations for consumers, and the considerable domain knowledge required to implement distributed large scale graph solutions we sought to provide recommendations for ... 
Matrix Representations of GF(p[superscript n]) over GF(p)
(20140131)We show that any nonsingular nxn matrix of order p[superscript n]1 over GF(p) is a generator of a matrix representation of GF(p[superscript n]). We also determine the number of matrix representations of GF(p[superscript ... 
Implementation of a MultiAgent System in Java Agent Development Framework for a largescale fossilfuel electrical power unit control.
(, 20140128)With technology and a largerthanever population, the society demand for energy has achieved records in the last few years. Currently, largescale fossil fuel power plants, ranging in the hundreds of MW’s, produce most ... 
Fields and Cyclic Codes for Error Detection
(20140114)This technical report discusses some of the aspects of error detection using finite fields. 
Demonstration of a power conditioning system for gridconnected fuel cell power plant.
(, 20130924)This thesis demonstrates a power conditioning system (PCS) for gridconnected hybrid direct fuelcell with turbine (DFC/T) power plant. The PCS is an interface between distributed generation and utility grid. It regulates ... 
Emergent behaviors of multiobjective swarms with applications in a dynamic underwater environment.
(, 20130924)The allocation of resources between tasks within a swarm of agents can be difficult without a centralized controller. This problem is prevalent when designing a swarm of Autonomous Underwater Vehicles, in which underwater ... 
The use of the flexural modulus in the comparison of fiber orientation models for concentrated suspensions in short fiberfilled thermoplastics.
(, 20130924)Advances in modeling spatially varying fiber orientation within an injection molded thermoplastic composite part have led to better structural designs and manufacturing efficiencies by optimizing mold designs and processing ... 
Algorithmic specified complexity.
(, 20130924)Information theory is a well developed field, but does not capture the essence of what information is. Shannon Information captures something in its definition of improbability as information. But not all improbable ... 
Numerical prediction and correlation of leading edge jet impingement with varying jet shapes and flow conditions for gas turbine cooling.
(, 20130924)To increase the core power of gas turbine engines, the combustion temperature is elevated above the metallurgical limits of the internal components. As a consequence, active cooling schemes are required to prevent the ... 
Faster kmeans clustering.
(, 20130924)The popular kmeans algorithm is used to discover clusters in vector data automatically. We present three accelerated algorithms that compute exactly the same clusters much faster than the standard method. First, we redesign ... 
Simulation and measurement of the Guided Microwave Spectrometry system.
(, 20130924)Previously, a novel microwave measurement device known as the Guided Microwave Spectrometry (GMS) system was developed for retrieving properties of material under test (MUT) and nondestructively measuring the composition ... 
Effects of the glenohumeral joint center on the role of the middle deltoid : implications for reverse total shoulder arthroplasty.
(, 20130924)For shoulders with rotator cuff damage, the reverse shoulder replacement medializes the center of glenohumeral joint rotation, lending larger moment arms to undamaged muscles like the deltoid. The aim of this thesis was ... 
Designing incentives in P2P systems.
(, 20130924)The goal of this thesis is bringing closer together the game theoretic approach of creating incentives with the requirements and properties of P2P systems. Briefly, we detail the P2P system context that incentive mechanisms ... 
The Conjugacy Classes of 3x3 and 4x4 Matrices Over GF(2)
(20130920)The general linear groups over GF(2) have an intricate and interesting structure. This report does some preliminary work in examining the structure of two of these groups by giving the conjugacy classes of 3x3 and 4x4 ... 
The Class 10 4x4 Faithful Representations of S4 over GF(2)
(20130920)There are 9 conjugacy classes of faithful representations of S4 in the general linear group of 4x4 matrices over GF(2). This report lists the representations belonging to class 10. (There is no class 6, so the classes are ...
